Rails Before Me - Poem by Manonton Dalan

i'm counting box cars
zipping through rails
sounds very familiar
three low notes; stop
it's three sets of wheels
balancing tons of weight

i'm trying to read markings
those are chinese characters
i could be misled; japanese
i really don't mind; i'm waiting
so i could get across quick
i only have thirty minutes break
